Description:

This KDE applet tries to replicate kpager but using 3D Desktop to change the virtual desktop. 3D Desktop (http://desk3d.sourceforge.net/) uses opengl to change the virtual desktop. You must insall it first. This is my first kde app, it needs a lot of work.

In the future I would like this app to look, feel, and act exactly like the kpager but use 3ddesktop to change the virtual desktop. I don't currently have the skills to do this, but I'm working on it and I will gladly accept any help in any form. Right now the buttons are hard coded for 4 desktops and coded for specific sizes (this needs to change). I may just try to modify the current kpager but at first glance it was much to complicated for a simple electronics engineer (I'm a hardware person not software).

I used KDevelop to start the development using its KDE applet framwork. Took alot of ideas from the 3DDesktop Start Applet (http://kdelook.org/content/show.php?content=12258).

Key Bindings
----------------
People keep asking me about using keyboard shortcuts (a.k.a. key bindings) to call k3ddesktop. K3ddesktop is just a "front end" for 3ddesktop. If you only want to use keyboard short cuts then you don't need k3ddesktop. Your keyboard shortcuts will call 3ddesktop (something like "3ddesk --view=godown") directly NOT k3ddesktop.
----------------

Do you have 3ddesktop installed? K3ddesktop is just a front end to 3ddesktop.

 Question

I really like the idea utilizing 3ddesktop, but wouldn't it be better to incoroporate it in KWin?? I just want to say, well, to develop a really cool pager app, well it could take some time. And there are already a few other pager projects out there. Moreover, KWin itself can switch between desktops. I believe, most KDE users prefer the keys [CTRL]+[LEFT/RIGHT] to switch over the alternative of using the pager.

Incorporating 3ddesktop into KWin would solve 1st the problem of the competition between KWin and the pager, as well as 2nd the problem of using 3ddesktop by other pager apps (if all pagers would use KWin to switch the desktops as well).

Best regards
Lucher

is it possible to bind a certain key with the "Run k3ddesk" option ?

I haven't found a way 'till now.
Maybe I just overlooked it ...

try using khotkeys. you can find it in control center/ regional&accessibility/ khotkeys.
i think the best way is to use a mouse gesture. works great

Ok, again. k3ddesktop is just a front end to 3ddesktop. You don't need k3ddesktop if you only want to use key bindings. Your keyboard bindings will call 3ddesktop directly NOT k3ddesktop. Check out the 3ddesktop package for details.

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
